This year was our 3rd annual late summer weekend in Lanesboro, our 3rd B&B, and the best breakfast so far. Organic and local, it's also at foodie level quality without being "weird" that can come with organic foodie food. Really delicious. Peter and Vicki do a nice job of participating in the guest conversation "just enough" - hanging back when... More

For a family reunion, we booked the entire Scandinavian Inn for the first weekend in August. The innkeepers, Peter and Vicki, were delightful. The breakfasts were truly fabulous--a couple of the best breakfasts I've ever eaten. The rooms were lovely. Everything was clean. The decoration was in keeping with the inn's history from the 1890's. Peter had a place for... More

Over the last 12 or so years we have visited the the Scandinavian Inn on 16 or 17 occasions. The hospitality is always warm and welcoming, the Inn always clean and comfortable and the food always noteworthy and plentiful. After a day on the river and bike trails, the roof top gazebo was a wonderful place to watch the sunset... More

It was very nice to return to the Scandinavian Inn and experience the friendly hospitality of the owners. The Balcony Room is perfect for a quiet, restful evening. The bed is comfortable and room is quiet. The balcony outside the room is delightful for enjoying a warm summer evening or your morning coffee. The common spaces are full of reading... More

Imagine a steaming cup of tea set outside your door as you arise, a gourmet breakfast with locally grown produce and meats, peppered with stimulating conversation at an elegantly set table . . This is what we found with Peter and Vicki, our gracious hosts. Climb the spiral stairs to finish off your day with a glass of wine, overlooking... More

A very nice BnB - hosts Vicki and Peter were awesome. Old historic Victorian that was ever so slightly modernized so as to meet 21st century expectations of comfort - such as bathrooms. Really nice rooms. Loaded with antiques. Great porch. Breakfast was outstanding - mostly local produce. Hosts are very fine cooks. Right in Lanesboro - has tons to... More

We're so grateful for our gracious hosts, Peter and Vicki. Melissa and I are not regular bed-n-breakfast guests. Peter and Vicki's friendly manner and clear explanations made our three-night stay comfortable and enjoyable. There home and grounds are beautiful and served as a terrific launch point for our bike rides and hikes. Breakfasts were thoughtfully prepared, healthy and delicious. I... More

Peter and Vicki have created an oasis. They have considered every detail and were most gracious hosts! We were extremely comfortable in our room and bed. The food was top notch! We loved The Balcony room! We highly recommend a stay here. We will be back.

We very much enjoyed our stay! A great weekend and Peter and Vicki are great hosts. Breakfast was fantastic! Really liked Lanesboro. Peter and Vicki were also helpful in telling us what was happening in the area so we could plan our day. We will be back.
